Ancient Egypt : Anatomy of a Civilisation, Paperback

Ancient Egypt : Anatomy of a Civilisation Paperback


Completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, this second edition of Barry J.

Kemp's popular text presents a compelling reassessment of what gave ancient Egypt its distinctive and enduring characteristics.

Ranging across Ancient Egyptian material culture, social and economic experiences, and the mindset of its people, the book also includes two new chapters exploring the last ten centuries of Ancient Egyptian civilization and who, in ethnic terms, the ancients were.

Fully illustrated, the book draws on both ancient written materials and decades of excavation evidence, transforming our understanding of this remarkable civilization.

Broad ranging yet impressively detailed, Kemp's work is an indispensable text for all students of Ancient Egypt.
